Sleep Inn St. Augustine
Ranked #42 of 78 Hotels in St. Augustine
Reviewed 30 March 2012

My husband and I stayed there not too long ago and it was atrocious. The room smelled dank and musty. The desk clerk was very indifferent and not very friendly. The worst part was the first night when we were about to go to sleep. The mattress was so hard, I honestly thought I was sleeping on a slab of concrete! I literally lifted up the sheets to see if there was concrete under there. After a sleepless night, we got up the next morning for breakfast, but the senior citizens had descended on the place like vultures at 7 AM and most of the food was gone. What was left, was stale and hard bagels , a few muffins, and flies were buzzing around and landing on the food. The next night, I refused to sleep in the bed and spend the night trying to sleep in the chair (more comfortable, BTW).
This hotel is located on the island, and while it looks relatively safe during the day, the area is run-down and seedy. At night, it feels very unsafe and is poorly lit.
Do not, do not, DO NOT stay here. Definitely not worth it.

We always stay here when going to a concert at the St. Aug Amph. Good location and always a good stay. Will continue to stay here each time we return to St. Augustine.

We stayed here one night while traveling from Orlando to Alabama. Check in was quick and the desk clerk was friendly, helpful, and efficient. The room was large, clean, quiet, and the bed was very comfortable. I like the large shower and the sink outside the bath area. The only complaint I had is that the breakfast area is too small and would not accommodate everyone who was trying to eat breakfast. There was a line of people trying to get food and coffee and not enough places for people to sit. We looked at the choices and decided it was not worth trying to eat there. Overall, the motel was nice and I would stay there again, just would know I would be eating breakfast somewhere else.

I've reviewed this property before and am pleased to say my opinions have not changed after staying here for the 8th year. It's still a good reasonably priced clean hotel a couple of miles out of Saint Augustine.

Very pleasant and updated property located close to everything in St. Augustine - just across the Bridge of Lions from downtown. The staff was pleasant and efficient, the room clean, quiet and comfortable. No tubs, but a fantastic walk-in shower with tremendous pressure that I really enjoyed. I didn't try breakfast, but coffee is complimentary 24 hours in the pleasant lobby, also had a fridge and individual hot beverage service in room. Has a small pool and hot tub area, but I didn't use them. For the price and location, you just can't beat it.
